Writing Pictures – ­ Picture Writing. Chinese Poster and Book Design Today

[Book]

Client

Museum Folkwang, Essen

Design

Jianping He, hesign International GmbH, Berlin

The book is a catalogue designed for an exhibition at the Museum Folkwang in the city of Essen, Germany, in which more than 70 designers presented their works in contemporary Chinese poster and book design. The design of this book is inspired by the form of folded pages found in traditional Chinese books. Therefore, it features a rectangular shape with inserted posters that unfold forward in a unique manner. This approach breaks with the tradition of folding all book pages inward: it folds only a small number of pages, making the book itself take on a trapezoidal form, as it ends up being thicker toward the binding side.
